  • A decent place but quite a disappointment this time. The water was hardly warm, people kept asking at the reception to crank up the temperature (even though it was mid-summer and still warm outside). The lifeguard did not let our 9 and 7 year old children to play in the kids area without one of the adults freezing nearby to watch them. Not to mention a crowd of Chinese tourists always getting in the way anywhere we went. But have to admit the views are outstanding nonetheless.
  • Wasn't what we were hoping for. The waters were warm but not hot, I think the hottest pool was 39°C. And I personally couldn't get very comfortable sitting or laying in the waters. We left after only 30 minutes. I wish they would add more comfortable laying\sitting possibilities in the water and have a pool 41°C+ and an ice plunge pool with -10°C water.
